Terui first made his major debut as the bassist for Blankey Jet City in 1990.

In 2000, after 10 years and countless stages, the band broke up. Terui went on to join several projects, such as Rosso, Raven, Twin Tail, and Pontiacs in search of his own original sound. It was around this time that he launched and produced the fashion brand Celt & Cobra, vigorously melding music and fashion, until in 2007, when he suddenly and reluctantly had to discontinue production.

In 2008, Terui founded his own label Weld, forming the instrumental unit, Signals, at the same time. During this time, Terui put down his base, saying goodbye to his days as a fierce rock'n roller and picked up the acoustic guitar, moving forward into a quieter, inner-world of his own. In the same year, Signals released their first album Lapis Sky, following up with the light, the shadow, the satellite the following year. In 2010, he released his first solo album Float under his full name.

2011 saw the release of Naked Fool, Signals' third album.

In 2013, he moved to Onomichi in Hiroshima Prefecture to privately record a solo album in a rustic old-fashion house.

In 2014, he released his second solo album What I Think About the World.

In 2015, he returned to Tokyo and started his own brand THERE, producing clothes again for the first time in 8 years. That same year, he opened his shop THERE in Kami-meguro, Tokyo.

In 2018, he reentered the recording studio in preparation for the remastered version of What I think about the World.

In 2019, Signals released their fourth album Moon Fiction after an eight-year break, while Terui released his third solo album IMPULSE.

In 2020, he teamed up with Signals' member Sakana Hosomi (E.piano & Organ), to form ROMEN, fusing digital and analog sounds, releasing their first album AO later that year.

With his eyes always set on what possibilities music may bring, Terui constantly seeks his own evolution through his creative output, even including composing music for film director and friend Toshiaki Toyoda for movies such as Monsters Club, The Miracle of Crybaby Shottan and The Day of Destruction.
